The topic for the Western History Association 52nd Annual Conference has been announced. Set for October 4-7, 2012, the WHA conference is titled, “Boundary Markers and Border Crossers: Finding the West and Westerners.” Both the Funk & the Beans are interested in the way borders are created and reified, but also how they are crossed and broken.
The 2o12 WHA will be in Denver, Colorado, and we look forward to being there with a pair of presentations. Submissions are due September of 2011. Have a look at the official call for papers below.
